HOUSTON – The days of agony for a Hispanic family in the greater Houston area are over.
This Saturday morning the child Christopher Ramírez, who mysteriously disappeared from his home on Wednesday, was found by the owner of a property located at a notorious distance from where the child was last seen.
The 3-year-old boy was found walking near FM 1486 near Highway 249, Tim Miller, director of Texas Equusearch, the same group of volunteers that found the remains of Hispanic soldier Vanessa Guillén, reported Saturday.
Miller said it was a “miracle” to have found it because of how complicated the search was.
“There were very strong challenges in the search, it has been one of the toughest of my career,” added the director.
It was four days of ordeal for the mother who from the day she disappeared desperately asked for her son to be returned to her, she claimed that her son could have been kidnapped, but the authorities said there was no evidence to support the possibility of a kidnapping.
Ramírez was reunited with his mother and taken to a hospital to be evaluated.
The Grimes County Sheriff’s Office said Christopher was found around 11:45 am and was dehydrated, which is why he was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital.
Hundreds of volunteers were looking for the boy in the wooded areas where he disappeared on Wednesday at around 2.45 pm
The boy allegedly chased a dog into a forest near his home and has not been seen since. The search for the little boy extended to Plantersville.
Calculating from where he disappeared to where he was found the boy traveled almost eight miles.
